What subgroup? Never seen those subs before.
>>
Those are official subs.

>>138723618
That's Crunchyroll though.

Lurkers: she's actually talking like that.

>>138723618
Wasn't she dropping a bunch of japanese memes? I mean, it's not like they did this for no reason.
>>

They blow.

>>138723618
That's actually more or less what she is saying, they are both fucking channers.

I know that Christina and Daru and Okabe are all supposed to be memespouting retards, but the line doesn't even make sense. Couldn't they translate it as "Epic fail" or something?
>>
>>138724118
That line does make sense though.
>>
>>138724118
It's a little excessive in terms of memeing out but it does make sense.
>>
>>138724166
That's quite a stretch from what she was saying.
Localization, especially of something like memes, is just cancerous.
>>
>>138724259
Please never translate anything.
>>
>>138724118
Epic fail is way worse.

This. When they suddenly start spouting western internet memes you're suddenly acutely aware of the localisation. You know this isn't what they're saying, and it takes you out of show. Suddenly you're second guessing everything in the translation becuase you don't know where else they're fucking around unfaithfully with it.
I think when watching a show, especially subbed, people are prepared to have things that are done are said that are foreign to them or they don't understand, and trying super hard to make something else fit instead of translating more faithfully is far less engaging for the end viewer.
>>
>>138724118
Do you not remember Xzibit memes?
>>
>>138725715
I think it should be a given or at least a unspoken rule that if you're watching something foreign, I don't expect you to make it more likeable to my country of origin.

>>138725715
I agree but professional translators will try to convey an idea if it can't work in a cultural context. Watch Western movies with Japanese subs and you'll kind of get that; some things are straight untranslatable without losing either dialogue or the audience themselves.

Wasn't this supposed to be the Death Note reference?

And that's why you learn the language, dick licker

To court the leddit audience. The fansubs and official VN TL is much better about it.
